Soldering Station Question

Soldering Station Question
Hey Gang!

Sorry I've been away for the summer...my garage at home was finished, so I've been busy building shelves, work benches, etc...and promptly filling it with junk...ah life!

My daughter is excited to head back and continue to play with 3D design, and whatever else interests her, so we'll be shooting to make Saturdays again...(she has sports during the week).

Anyhow....I have a question: The soldering station...When Dan showed it to me, I remember it had a nice FINE tip on the iron (or available)...is there a magnifying glass there as well by chance? I have a new project, and it's TINY...QFN chips, etc...I've tried to put one together at home, and I think I could have done better with a better station.

Anybody recall if there is a magnifying glass there?

RE: Soldering Station Question
There are a couple 'helping hands' holders with magnifying glasses, but they aren't great. I think a good magnifier is something that would be a good tool to have at the space. I'll look around to see if I can find a good deal on one.
